The AT&T Foundation and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) today unveiled 32 locations that will house new community technology centers in low-income Hispanic communities through LULAC's Empower Hispanic America with Technology initiative.
“In addition to creating 32 new technology centers, the funds will also enable us to maintain 23 current locations established under the previous grant,” said LULAC National President Rosa Rosales. The LULAC-affiliated centers provide access to and instruction on modern computer technology in addition to assistance with resumes, college application preparation, GED preparation, financial aid research, and online citizenship services and job-search programs. Clients served by the community technology centers are low-income and/or first-generation Hispanic-American youth and adults. “More than 55,000 Latinos received access and instruction on computer technology through AT&T's support in 2004, and we expect this new grant to more than double the number of people we can help.” he added.
